Yesterday, after a 1993 letter from then-Texas Agriculture Commissioner Rick Perry commending then first lady Hillary Clinton and her efforts to reform health care surfaced, some Republicans are questioning 2012 presidential candidate Texas Gov. Rick Perrys conservative credentials.
The letter and his support for Al Gore in 1988 have fueled Perrys detractors who suggest the Texan is all style and less substance when it comes to principles. And MSNBC host Joe Scarborough is one of those detractors.
On his Wednesday Morning Joe program, the former Florida congressman launched into a near 15-minute rant, complete with faux southern accent, ripping Perrys Democratic past before he became a Republican.

Look who is talking!
And Joe is a Token conservative on the Lean Forward and grab your ankles station.
I wonder what MorningLiberalJoe’s FR screenname is? He sure seems scared of Perry getting the GOP nomination.
Heck, if Joe don’t like him, that makes me like him all the more
Wasn’t Perry a Democrat in 1988? Who exactly would one expect him to support?
I believe Reagan switched parties as well.
The only one who cares what Joe thinks are his listeners- BOTH of them!
You over valued Morning Joe by $.10
Rush just stated on air that Soros-Axelro media is veryyyy scared of Perry and Palin and they have a reason too.
Perry has simply proved the old axiom, “Show me a young man who is not a liberal and I will show you a man without a heart. Show me an old man who IS a liberal and I will show you a man without a brain.”
Looks like Perry’s party switch proved he gained wisdom beyond his years.
He saying this drivel now to try and torpedo Perry in the primaries, but bet your house on the fact that if Perry gets the nomination, he will later accuse Perry of being to far right
“FORT WALTON BEACH, FL. - Lori Klausutis, a 28-year-old office worker for Rep. Joe Scarborough (R-Fl), was found dead in the congressman’s district office. Police said preliminary findings from the medical examiner’s office showed no foul play or any outward indication of suicide.”
Unbelievably, that was it. The story was simply dropped.
Tell us about her, Joe.
and his boy obama is a two bit hustler and a con man.

I’d probably give a nickel for him. He could clean my toilet, and when he was done, he could bend over, grab his ankles, and serve as the brush holder. ;-)
Wow . Who is that dead girl in my office ?
